Server Interview

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Outback Steakhouse.

Interview Details – I was already a frequent flyer at the location, decided I needed a change, and applied a week later. Walked in during non-peak daytime, and filled out an application, had a short chat with a manager and left with a job and a menu. One interview. The menu test, though, is completely handwritten, every food item. So, be prepared.
